Netflix’s popular sports documentary series “Last Chance U” is changing formats and is moving from football to basketball after this year.
On Tuesday, Netflix released the trailer for the fifth and final football season of ‘Last Chance U” which will follow the Laney College JUCO football out of Oakland, California which will become available for streaming on July 28th.
“After clinching the title of state and national champions in 2018, the Laney Eagles have a hard season to follow and a lot to prove,” reads the final season’s official synopsis. “Going into his eighth season and having built the program from the ground up, powerhouse head coach John Beam must fight to rally the team amidst countless setbacks. Season 5 brings intensity both on and off the field as players battle injuries, stress, and personal demons while finding much needed support in the community and taking pride in their scrappy mentality and motto ‘Laney Built.’”
On July 28, meet the players and coaches of Laney College.
